MEA - Buena Vista

Buena Vista Residence San Francisco The Buena Vista Residence presented a rare opportunity to build a new home in San Francisco. The lot is very small, but with wonderful views of the Buena Vista Park to the north and panoramic views of the hills to the south. Our clients are a young professional couple and child quite comfortable with contemporary design and architecture. The building was designed primarily in model form to maintain focus on volume and spaciousness. The steel structural frame structure is exposed, allowing for a minimum of interior bearing walls. Great room

This looks like the Magis Bombo Barstool. If you're going for insanely cool in the kitchen, this is the stool for you. Unfortunately, they also come with an insanely expensive price tag:

If you like the look but not the cost, check out this more affordable option:

Wooden stairs and the darker color wood species(?) on the tread, beautiful way prevent them becoming visually flat. And attention to detail the way the 3 step down lines up with the top line of the cabinetry along the back wall.

Nice space. Like how the railing seperates the space without enclosing the space, and the combing of 2 floor levels into one open space.

The two tones of wood on the stairs. Here is another way to have a very subtle railing that looks cool - like harp strings.
